What is Follicular Unit Extraction?
Follicular Unit Extraction is the modern technique for hair transplantation. F.U.E is more advanced than methods such as F.U.T where thin strips of the scalp are cut from the donor region.
During an F.U.E procedure, a highly skilled and experienced surgeon extracts hair follicles from the donor region, typically the back and sides of the scalp.
Using a specialised extraction method which may be manual or mechanical, follicular units are extracted and then under a powerful microscope transplanted into the scalp region in groups of one to four hairs, recreating the grouping of growth that would naturally occur.
Advantages of Follicular Unit Extraction
F.U.E is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that only a local anesthetic is needed for. Recovery time is short and the risk of complications is low.
F.U.E differs from standard hair transplants in crucial areas and the most prominent is visual scarring. The F.U.E technique does not leave any distinctive scars or noticeable changes, other than the growth of new hair, in comparison to F.U.T (strip surgery) which leaves a very noticeable scar at the area where strips of the scalp were removed in order to harvest hair follicles.
The old Strip hair transplantation method has a longer recovery time in comparison to FUE. F.U.E leaves some initial bleeding, but usually, recovery is complete within 7 days. However, with strip harvesting, because part of the scalp is removed, it can take weeks for the wound to heal over.
The F.U.E technique for hair transplantation offers the highest quality, naturalness and undetectable signs of the procedure, which is the most significant advantage.
